Press Release   •   Jan 21, 2010 10:33 GMT

"William Hague's comments are welcome," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Foreign Secretary.

Responding to William Hague's comments that 'It is only right and proper that all those who played a role in taking the country to war give evidence before the general election', Edward Davey said:

"William Hague's comments are welcome. As a key backer of the drive to war in Iraq, we look forward to him volunteering to appear before the Inquiry, along with Iain Duncan Smith, the Tory leader at the time.

"The huge role played by the Conservatives in backing Labour's disastrous and illegal war deserves to be examined."
